Ph.D. thesis

Problèmes de tournées de véhicules avec contraintes de chargement

Master thesis

Une heuristique à grand voisinage pour un problème de confection de tournée pour un seul véhicule avec cueillettes et livraisons et contrainte de chargement
(Contains one more algorithm which perform very well on TSPPDL instances and more results but in french!)
